2002 Yamaha YZ250F

What’s Your Favorite Number? Our’s is 1…

“In the hands of a talented rider, the 2002 Yamaha YZ250F will be untouchable.” Well, we know at least one racer who must be a Cycle World reader, because this past 2001 season he was every bit the dominant force in the 125cc West Regional Supercross series aboard his YZ-F, winning five of eight rounds en route to his second 125 title.

Add to that Dirt Rider’s “Bike of the Year,” Cycle World’s “Best Motocross Bike 2001,” and MXA’s “Bike of the Year” honors.

Not bad for a first-year four-stroke machine right out of the crate.
